The Fuel Pump May Fail Causing the Engine to Stall or Crank Over But Not Start on Chevrolet Venture

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

I have not corrected the problem yet as this just happened last night. No check engine light came on either. I ran in store left vam running came out about 5 minutes later and van stalled! It would not start back up! It wants to but can't turn over. There is a spark. The fuel is not making it to the engine. Which by the way the gas gauge stopped working on this van too about 5,000 miles back!

van just cut off last night.haven't checked anything yet,was looking to get an idea of where to start. was wondering if there is an access panel to fuel pump or if the tank has to be dropped?

Will not start all the time . Turns over but will not crank I get stranded for hours at a time.!
after replacing fuel filter 3 times, dropped tank and cleaned it out another new filter, ran good 10 miles, then quit, I then found a dead cell in battery and replaced it, ran 10 miles and quit again. it has new plugs, wires, air and fuel filters, and used throttle body cleaner on throttle body and maf, sensors, cleaned butterfly, the fuel pump was changed about 15000 miles ago, it now try's to start but if you touch gas pedal it shuts down. fuel tank cleaned yesterday and battery changed today. I have been a auto tech 30 years and a heavy equipment tech 10 years and never had anything occur like this before. I don't have a fuel pressure gauge but if it was the fuel pump, why would it start and run perfect for 10 miles then just quit.
My truck stopped while I was driving and it act like it wants to crank

Pretty much the same as others here. Replaced fuel pump and couple sensors but still cranks for about 15 seconds before finally starting.

When my Venture did this, it took the shop 3 days to figure it out - a freakin' $15 wiring harness about halfway back to the fuel tank got corroded. Over $300 to fix that because of all the time it took them to figure it out. Van would randomly not start and sometimes die.

Note: engine was replaced at <40,000 under warranty. Vehicle now has 80,000 and sometimes fails to start. It runs FINE. It occasionally fails to start, although it cranks well...just fails to turn over.
